Bishop has had a trying spring, as he's worked to start a new charity to help raise money and awareness for early-onset Alzheimer's to help his mother, who was diagnosed with the disease at age 54. Bishop was coming off a strong summer in the Cape Cod League, where he was one of the league's more exciting outfielders but struggled at times as a junior for a Washington team that never came around offensively. Bishop did lead the team in steals, is an above-average runner and a plus defender in center field, with strong instincts, a true plus arm and the range to cover the gaps well. Offensively, Bishop makes some contact and has some bat speed, but his swing lacks a load and he gets out of rhythm easily, especially looking harmless against quality breaking balls. The 6-foot-1, 188-pounder plays hard, sometimes to a fault, as he picks up nagging injuries from his all-out, diving style in the outfield. His wiry athleticism and glove should get him picked in the first five rounds.
